Melies Plays with Glue

Good Glue Sticks (1907)

*** (out of 4)

aka La colle universelle

Charming film from Georges Melies has a street vendor selling some very good glue but a couple jerk cops run off all of his customers so he decides to seek revenge when he catches the two sleeping. GOOD GLUE STICKS lives up to its title as being good. Fans of the French master should really enjoy the fast-pacing of this one as it pretty much doesn't stop or slow down once everything gets started and going into action. Some of the best scenes are the mad dash at the end when all sorts of thing start to go wrong and the seller is just trying to get away from it all. The trick shot of what he does to the two cops is rather obvious but it's still charming in its own way. There are a couple funny scenes throughout the six-minute running time so fans of the director will certainly want to check this one out.
